2,4-D is an inexpensive and effective tool for weed control and herbicide resistance management in small grains. 13.4 million acres of winter wheat alone were treated with 4.04 million pounds of 2,4-D in 2012, demonstrating the utility of the herbicide. Alternative herbicides are either less effective or more expensive, while manual weed control is astronomically more costly and difficult due to planting practices in small grains. On a per acre basis, no herbicide controls as many weeds as inexpensively as 2,4-D.
